Kanye West Slams Taylor Swift (Again)

Kanye West Slams Taylor Swift (Again)-photo

Remember when Kanye West apologized to Taylor Swift for his infamous VMA burn in a marathon Twitter rant, saying the innocent songbird had "nothing to do with" his "issues with awards shows?"

One month later, Kanye's awards show complex is rearing its ugly head again. In a new chat with Access Hollywood, the "Runaway" rapper slams Taylor as undeserving of last year's Grammy win for Album of the Year. 

"Why are the last four Albums of the Year: Taylor Swift, Dixie Chicks, Ray Charles and Herbie Hancock? Like, you know, with all due respect… that’s inaccurate,” Kanye wondered out loud to Access.

Ouch! Kanye opines that voters for the musical honors have recently passed over talented, top-selling acts in favor of the smaller, less commercial albums. So who are Kanye's de facto picks for Album of the Year?

“It’s like ‘SexyBack’ — you know what I’m saying? Like [Justin Timberlake’s] ‘FutureSex/LoveSounds,’ Gnarls Barkley. How about Usher — ‘Confessions’?" Kanye said.  "How about albums that sold 10 million?"

It appears Kanye may still be in need of some awards show therapy, as he says he believes the trophy-fests "mean something to us" and urges the Grammy (and VMA!) organizers to "take some responsibility to say what really happened in culture this year because we’re marking it down.”

Do you agree–or disagree–with Kanye's latest Swift slam? Sound off in the comments.

    I agree with the person above me. & the people he named that should have apparently won an award or w/e were artists that sing about sex mostly. no wonder they didn't win. he obviously doesn't know what real music is. i totally agree. I cannot believe he said Ray Charles didn't deserve an award! The Grammy's are not voted on by the people but a select group of musically intellectual individuals who know what's good music. I don't listen to Ray Charles often but that's just my personal taste. but I know his music is one of the greatest. Sometimes you have to actual look at the quality of the work. Taylor may not be a great live singer but her album was more or less quality work. If all those "top selling" artists he mentioned won album of the year awards then we wouldn't need the Grammy's now would we. We could just look up who sold the most.

    People needs to remember that doesnt matter how many records you sell, its about the soul and talent you put on it, and taylor did that. Justin Bieber sells millions of records that doesnt make him any better.

    If any other artist who have won that award that night, it w ould have been WAY different. Katy Perry, Kelly Clarkson and Pink would've shut his ass up! ! Oh my god, I'm almost wishing Pink HAD won, because that would be soooo awesome watching her lay some smackdown on him. A moment that would live on forever.

    two thing:1 i would like you to name one of kanye west songs that is deep and mean something real...2 you can't call someone stupid b/c you don't agree with what they said....if thats the case u r studip I did not call anyone stupid. I said to say something so extreme like he should commit suicide is stupid & pointless. Read my comment before you start calling names, also when I was comparing music I never even mentioned Kanye's I mentioned that he had a point! Which agian read my comment and think before you start babbling about me being 'studip'. You can have your own opinion, that doesn't matter to me but to go to that extreme is unnecessary.

    Why do people treat this girl like she is a f**king victim? It was a year ago at an award show! Get OVER it!! He didn't shoot the girl, take her virginity or break her heart sure what he did was a dick thing to do but seriously get over it. To say he should consider suicide over something so stupid & pointless is extreme. I actually agree with him alot of artist get snubbed for others that are horrid to listen to. But than agian we live in a day where people would rather a listen to an over auto-tuned mindless club song over a real one with deeper meaning. two thing:1 i would like you to name one of kanye west songs that is deep and mean something real...2 you can't call someone stupid b/c you don't agree with what they said....if thats the case u r studip

    There's no evil or saint... neither is he on nor is she the other! Just a mather of opinion. I think he's right in one thing at least, our cultural level worldwide is decreasing but hey... that's DemoCratia... the power of the people (or not so much, in practice...) P.S Taylor Swift strikes me as tooooooooo politically correct and I always suspect that kind of persons... smells fake

    Kanye is a complete liar. He is just nut job waiting to explode again. I never bought his whole "I am so sorry for what I have done." The man is completey crazy and needs to be sitting in a padded cell. He has pulled many stunts before the Taylor stuff went down. I seriously hope he will contenplate commiting suicide again.

    I still think Kanye is an A$$ and the poster above me is right. Kanye took advantage of Taylor's sweetness, if that was PINK up there that would have never happened. BUT after saying all that, I agree with Kanye that the undeserving seem to win these awards often. Taylor is an OK sweet songwriter- recording artist but the girl can NOT sing live. Kanye s*cks at live singing as well, and lately Usher also s*cks live.

    He's right, sometimes alot of talent goes unappriciated and those who aren't great win, but Taylor most definately deserved the awards she won. She writes song by herself (most are just co writer, and she use to be a professional songwriter) and her album was anice collection of songs, if your a fan of pop-country. But I guess this type of thing all depends on your taste. Personally, I don't see what's so fantasic about Beyonce video where he had to get up and say something. It's just her and two other girls dancing in a white room in black leotards and baby oil. Taylor's video actually had a story that went with thesong. If any other artist who have won that award that night, it w ould have been WAY different. Katy Perry, Kelly Clarkson and Pink would've shut his ass up! I apreciate her love of the artist and intellectual side of music, but it isn't his place to say. He's only going to make people hate him more by being so boushy!
